Hickory Flooring and Stairway Installed – Atlantic Beach

These Atlantic Beach clients contracted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to bring the warmth and charm of Hickory wood to the floors and stairway of their home.

They selected 5″ wide engineered, wire brushed Hickory Natural hardwood flooring by Mirage, with the DURAMATT finish.

The selection of this natural Hickory brings beautiful amounts of character and variance from plank to plank. These varied length planks encourage creativity in our installation crew, too!

(We also match stained Pine baseboards and shoe molding to the new Hickory flooring.)

For the stairway, we started by sanding the rough solid Hickory wood treads. Then our crew “popped the grain” of the wood treads with water, and wire brushed the treads to get the brushed effect seen on the Hickory flooring. We finished these solid Hickory stair treads with 3 coats of durable Pallmann finish.

These homeowners told us that they loved the look of their new Hickory floors and stairs! Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Installing Hickory Hardwood Flooring in Palencia

When the owners of a home in the Palencia community in St. Augustine, Florida were ready for a new look for their floors, they called Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303.

Stony Brook Hickory hardwood flooring.These homeowners wanted to replace the laminate flooring in most of the rooms of their home. They decided on hand scraped, wire brushed, 7 1/2″ wide engineered Hickory hardwood flooring, called Stony Brook by Naturally Aged, from their Medallion collection for their new wood flooring. This wood flooring comes in random lengths, which makes their floors more visually appealing.

As we started removing the old laminate flooring, we were surprised to find that the laminate had been installed with pressure sensitive glue! (That’s not a recommended, durable adhesive for flooring.) Once the old laminate flooring and the sticky glue were removed, we leveled the concrete slab subfloor of the rooms in the home that were to get the new flooring.

Our clients decided to extend the Hickory hardwood flooring into the bathroom, so we removed the pedestal sink and toilet and prepared that subfloor, too.

We “picture framed” the hearth for the fireplace in the den, and cut a 5′ by 3′ slab of porcelain tile to fit. It made a nice focal point for the room; a nice touch.

Our crew made header boards for the doorways to the bathroom and the master bedroom, so no t-molding. We installed the Hickory hardwood flooring through the rest of the rooms, using durable Bostik Greenforce adhesive.

Our customers told us that they really like how nice their new Hickory floors look, and the porcelain fireplace hearth. Dan’s Floor Store always enjoys having happy clients.

Installing Wire Brushed Hickory Flooring – Ponte Vedra Beach

Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 was called to help with a flooring improvement project by these Ponte Vedra Beach home owners, who had also been our clients years ago.

It’s always nice when prior clients calls you to help with another flooring project. They had purchased a new house, and they did not like the wood flooring that was in there.

Our clients selected an engineered hardwood, wire brushed Hickory flooring by Bella Cera for their new home. The random width flooring planks are 4″, 5″, and 6″ wide, with distinct sawmark directions and textures, and color variation for a nice visual effect. This is one of the array of wood flooring brands that we sell and install

Our crew began this job by removing all of the old flooring.

Next, we did extensive leveling of the concrete slab subfloor, to prepare it for the new hardwood flooring.

Our crew installed the Hickory flooring with Bostik’s Pro-cure adhesive.

We finished this job by installing shoe molding around the edges of the new wire brushed Hickory flooring. Our clients told us they were absolutely flabbergasted by the look of their new floors. And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

FSC Certified Hickory Flooring Install – Palencia Country Club

FSC Certified Hickory flooring - installedOur clients selected a FSC certified Hickory flooring by Tesoro woods for their home in the Palencia Golf and Country Club community in St. Augustine.

FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certification is the hardest approval stamp to achieve for wood flooring. The FSC certification “ensures that products come from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits”.

The concrete slab subfloor of the home required a lot of leveling prior to installing the Hickory wood floor. Our crew began work by leveling the slab with Bostik SL – 150, Self Leveling Underlayment.

The FSC certified Hickory flooring has an incredible color – “Vintage Gatehouse – Desert”, which is slightly grey with natural undertones. We installed the flooring with Bostik ProCure Urethane adhesive.

Refinishing Hickory Flooring – St. Augustine

Dan’s Floor Store is thankful to have been able to help many First Coast homeowners and businesses with wood floors that were water damaged during hurricane Matthew (which occurred in the fall of 2016). While not always the case, often the wood floors could be restored with repairs and refinishing. Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 offers a free consultation and estimate for wood floor installations, repairs, refinishing, and for tile work.

Owner of a home situated on the marsh just west of the St. Augustine Amphitheater called us for a consultation on their water damaged wood floor. As a result of their wood floor being under water during the storm, we could see some slight cupping of their hickory wood floor.

We were happy to tell them that their hickory wood flooring did not need to be replaced, we could sand and refinish it to last for many more years of service. Refinishing Hickory flooring is certainly in our Dan’s Floor Store repertoire.

Their natural Hickory wood floors by Anderson had been prefinished with aluminum oxide. Aluminum oxide provides a very hard finish which does not sand off easily for refinishing; it ruins our sandpaper quickly. Some of the photos show how the finish turns white but is not fully removed after one rough cut of sandpaper. In all, we made three sanding cuts to remove the aluminum oxide from the Hickory flooring.

The homeowner chose an oil-modified polyurethane Bona Woodline satin to finish their floor. For Bona oil-based polyurethane, the procedure that we use to get best results is to only do one coat per day and abrade the floors between the coats. This process results in solid bonding and cleaner, smooth finish results.

Our customer was “over the moon” to be able to save/salvage their hickory wood flooring. And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!
